A birthday gift...

My friends little girl had a birthday this last summer, and I whipped up this puppet theater for her. I got the pattern out of Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing book.

It was much simpler to make that I first thought it would be.

The pattern includes a matching case pattern so that you can roll the theater up when you are not using it and store it away. The case also makes the perfect wrapping paper I think.

The button on the case was given to me by the birthday girl. I thought it was fitting to use it on the case.

By the way, she loved it.

Just because they were sooo much fun...

I had to make another one.


This one is uses two coordinating fabrics.

and I added a small pocket on the inside.

and look I even have a navy blue mini notebook to match.

Hmmm.....wonder who I will give this one to?

It does coordinate with one of these bags....

Notebook Covers I found this super cute mini composition books while looking for school supplies for my kids.


Aren't they adorable?

I knew that they had to have a cover.

So I spent hours this weekend working on some sort of cover for them.

And this is what I came up with.


I made one for each of the kids and one for me that matches my Margaret Bag.


The inside.

I must say. It takes a while to actually make something you see in your head. Following a pattern is so much easier. But I think it was well worth the experience.

The kids love them. I love mine.

Now I may have to work on a cover for the full size Composition books I purchased.
